Kristina Lawson, council member from Walnut Creek since 2010 has been in the news quite a lot recently. In the Contra Costa Times she had an op-ed titled, Your Turn: Must end crime and violence in downtown Walnut Creek, and was also featured in the San Francisco Business Times in its Forty Under Forty where she said:
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up: As far back as I can remember, I wanted to be a lawyer and be involved in shaping public policy.
Looks like a lot more is in store for Kristina Lawson. My prediction, future mayor of Walnut Creek, or maybe even a higher office? What do you think?
